A nationwide kitchen supplier is set to open a new outlet at a growing business park in Highbridge.
Howdens Joinery has taken a 6,500 sq ft unit at the Oaktree Business Park on the outskirts of Highbridge next to the busy A38. It will open at the end of June.
The unit will be used as a trade counter for fitted kitchens, joinery, flooring, appliances and associated products.
Howdens has fitted out the building with a trade counter and a storage area. The new outlet is expected to start trading there in the next few weeks.
A local council spokesperson says: “It is pleasing to see a nationwide company such as Howdens coming to Highbridge, bringing new jobs to the town.”
A spokesperson for Howdens said: “We’re excited to be opening our Highbridge depot at the end of June. Our new depot will be offering the top-level services to tradespeople that Howdens is known for right across the country.”
“Our friendly team will be on hand to help trade customers with any project, large or small, offering product insight, trade account support, kitchen planning, and more.”
It comes after Screwfix also opened a new 6,500 sq ft unit next door in February, creating 13 new jobs, as reported here. The Oaktree Business Park is a 14.6 acre development by KMW Trading Ltd.
